Not new, but this wave simulation by Artell Blender is SOOOO good! Check it out.
(Hat tip to Tangent Animation).
My latest project to improve my skills in Blender fluid simulation. 100% Blender, except After Effect for final compositing. Been using Realflow before, and i'm quite surprised by Blender! It deserves a lot more attention.
The wet sand is done with dynamic paint maps.
Fluid res: 697 (60 sec/frame)
Splash particles: ~300K
Fluid pass (diffuse, glossy, vector): ~35 sec/frame
Splash pass: ~25 sec/frame
Vamos a la playa!
